    Thanks I love how you do your work. I'm working on a block of month that I ripped out a million times, you said ou could do this for any block size. Thats the hard part to figure out for me. My pattern says cut 1 5/8 squares. So I would cut stips at 1 5/8th or bigger? They have to measure 1 5/8 when done. Also you mean when u press the stirps the seams are open not together going one way? thanks for advice and tutorial!

    Thank you Rhonda. The Boston Block is cool. What do you do with the cut up fabric? I would hate to waste all that fabric.

    Omg, this is amazing! I love to sew with triangles. I am definitely going to try this way instead. Right now, I do a lot of precise trimming which is slowly killing my hands.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I have used this half square triangle method, but used bias strips to start with, so i didnt end up with bias on the units outer edges.

    Bias has never been a problem for me. I guess I use tacks to keep it in place so no problem with it buckling in the middle or stretching out of place. If you put a pin in the center of the seam that will help also to keep it in place. I never pay any attention to bias.
